Our Programs & Projects
Game changer mentorship
The Game Changer programme is a partnership between Sandals and Wades World Foundation aimed at providing underserved youth access to planned sports, recreation and healthy lifestyle. It has been proven that young people who engage in sports display an attitude of teamwork and character, which demonstrates discipline, leadership, respect and self- confidence.
Game Changer aims to build partnerships in local communities between youth groups, schools and NGOs.
Students across Turks & Caicos, along with their coaches, had the unique opportunity to hear from the NBA Champion Dwyane Wade basketball super-star and other members of the Wade’s World Foundation team. Wade took some time to share his inspirational story with young athletes through a mentorship session during the Wade World Submit held in the TCI. READ MORE
